SENATOR DIMERY WOULD REDUCE
EXPENSES $10,000 TO $15,000.
A LESS NUMBER OF EMPLOYES
Thinks the Industrial Home for Wo
men and the Home for the Friend
less Could be Combined With Ad
vantage $20,000 for Fifteen Women
Lincoln , Jan. 1. Special corres
pondence : Senator Dlmory of Duller
and Sownrd will early call attention
to n state of affairs existing among
the state Institutions , and will pre
sent some Interesting figures from the
records to show where ho thinks
things can be put on a butter busi
ness basis and result In a saving of
many thousands of dollars to the
"Wo must make nn earnest stand
for economy and business methods , "
said Senator Dlmery , "and 1 know of
no bettor place to begin. I have made
a personal Investigation of the Indus
trial homo for women at Mllford.
There is n splendid property , a good
building and plenty of land. Hut
there nro forty rooms that have not
been occupied for a long time. There
nro only fifteen women in the homo ,
half that number of employes. The
expense for salaries , for heating and
lighting , and for maintenance of em
ployes is clear out of proportion. The
building Is too largo for Its present
use , and the expense Is too much. At
the same time the state has the prop
erty , and it would probably bo unsal
able for private purposes.
"At Lincoln is the home for the
friendless , where there are sixty lit
tle children , and whore again the ex
pense is out of proportion. It seems
to mo that the sensible and business
like thing to do is to combine these
two institutions , where one set of of
ficers and employes can handle them ,
and where there can be a reduction
of at least one-half the present outlay
In heat , light , repairs , and other Items
and a considerable reduction In main
Senator Dlmery called attention to
the report of the state auditor show
ing the appropriations for these two
institutions made by the last legisla
ture. The figures for the Milford in
stitution were as follows :
Salary of superintendent . $1COO
Salary of matron . 1,000
Salary of physician . 1,400
Salary of teacher and secretary 1,000
Salary of engineer . 1,800
Salary of farmer and coachman 800
Salary of sewing teacher . COO
Salary of head nurse . COO
Maintenance . 5,500
Fuel and lights . 3,000
Burials and amusements . 200
Drugs , etc . 400
Feed for stock . COO
Stationary and postage . 400
Repairs . 500
Traveling and official expenses. 450
Water supply . 250
Total . $20,100
"Here , " said Senator Dimery , "you
will notice that it cost $8,000 in sal
aries to look after fifteen adult in
mates for the blennium , and it co t
$5,500 to feed and maintain the in
mates and employes , and $3,000 for
fuel and lights. I could not but no
tice the item of $1,800 paid for nn en
gineer to warm a building for fifteen
wards of the state not counting the
fuel and lights , -which cost $3,000
more. Thus the heating and light
ing alone cost the state $150 for each
woman. A farmer is paid $400 per
year , and then the state pays out $300
per year for feed for stock. "
The official figures for the home
for the friendless were :
Salary of superintendent . $1,800
Salary of matron . 1,200
Salary of physician . 1,400
Salary of head teacher and sec
retary . COO
Salary of head nurse . COO
Salary of engineer . 960
Employes wages . 7,000
Maintenance . ( . 14,000
Repairs . 3,000
"You will notice , " said Senator
Dimery , "that It costs $13,5CO a blen
nium for officials and employes sal
aries , which , leaving out the Item of
repairs , is one-half the running ex
pense of the entire Institution , and out
of the maintenance fund comes the
cost of the living of such of the offi
cials and employes as arc boarded
there at the expense of the state.
Here again comes the salary of the
engineer , the item of fuel and lights ,
the duplication of superintendents ,
matrons , physicians , teachers and sec
"I do not propose a combination of
these institutions simply because one
of them is in my district. It is a pure
business proposition in which we are
nil interested. If the property at Lin-
coin , located ns It Is In the growing
part of the city and on a car line ,
can bo disposed of at the best advan
tage , then by nil means the children
should bo moved out where they can
occupy the vacant part of the Mllford
building , and bo given whatever ad
vantage there is in the amount of out-
sldo room and pleasant surroundings.
In Bomo way , at any event , a plan can
bo devised to put them all under one
roof and one management , with a
clear saving to the state of from $10-
000 to $15,000 per year. "
In pointing out the need of con
densation of the Institutions Senator
Dlmery showed that of the $27,380
paid out each two years for the reg
ular expense of the girls home at
Geneva , $11,210 goes for employes
wages , $4,000 for fuel and lights , and
$1,000 for water supply , these Items
being very largo compared with the
size of the Institution and the actual
amount paid out to maintain the in
mates , but ho has no plan to suggest
nt present that will relieve this con
There nro a number of members
who , like Senator Dlmery. are anx
ious to bring about some changes that
will reduce the running expenses of
the state , and It Is probable that they
will early give their attention to an
investigation of the various bureaus
and commissions with a view to dis
pensing with those that have the least
excuse for existence. It has often
been remarked that the state is payIng -
Ing the expenses of some sinecures
that were originally created to make
room for political helpers , and have
served little other purpose Mncc their

SNAKE ON THE ROADSIDE.
CHILLED BY WINTRY WINDS
Norfolk Rural Route Carrier , Driving
Thirteen Miles North of Norfolk ,
Comes Across a Tiny , Forked
Tongued , Little Serpent.
Snakes In the road in January.
That Is what Rural Free Delivery
Carrier Schow has to report as hav
ing been seen on his route , thirteen
miles north of Norfolk. The serpent
that had come to life , crawled out In
the public highway near the Braasch
farm , just an unlucky number of
miles to the north , and stayed there.
Then the Norfolk rural deliverer came
along and the fireworks exploded.
Driving out In the rural district ,
taking a letter to this one and a pa
per to that , of his patrons , the car
rier had little thought of snakes. The
weather , In the first place , was alto
gether too frigid for any such sum-
merllko dreams. And he had no rea

The horses were trotting along mer
rily just ns horses will trot during
the holiday season of January. They
were thinking of the miles and miles
that they yet had to trot , before they
could bo allowed to get back Into their
stalls at home. They had In mind nil
of the farmers and the all of the rur-
ral mall boxes along the roadside ,
never once thinking of anything that
might oven suggest the warm old
days of July or September.
Hut the wintry winds wore sudden
ly shattered. They had to blow away.
Back , back to the prairies they wore
hurled. There in the middle of the
road , calmly , peacefully and without
any fear of the approaching federal
mall wagon , crept a tiny garter snake.
It opened its eyoq , looked around and
twirled its Httlo forked tongue at the
team of horses.
It didn't seem to reali/o that it was
out without a wrap. And In January.
